Many people watch home decorating shows like Trading Spaces for great ideas and decorating drama. But can the ideas you see on TV really be done by you and a couple of good friends? ABC7 decided to help a couple of our viewers redo a room in their home desperately in need of a makeover. Unlike the TV shows, they had to do it in one day with stuff they already owned and only a hundred bucks.
“I’m not very good knowing what colors go with what how to make things less cluttered,” said Lorena Lopez, who shares her Chicago apartment with her husband and baby. Their dining room has problems– a ceiling that’s falling in and too many knick-knacks. We paired Lopez with designer Janet Shepherd.
For interior designer Janet Shepherd, change is good. Though there’s certainly no place like home, Janet, who owns Janet Shepherd Design®, knows that a balanced and eye-catching house is a big step to creating an even more comfortable living space. She understands how a few simple changes can reinvent a room to make it reflect both class and comfort, and shows us how she did just that to a house in suburban Hazel Crest.
Redecorating A Room? The Rest Of The House Has Ideas
Redoing a room doesn’t have to mean facing the daunting prospect–or price–of starting from scratch. Professional room arrangers take furniture and accessories already in the house and rearrange them to create a new look. The results can be dramatic yet not traumatic because the elements of the new look reflect the homeowner’s own tastes and passions.
